Our Lady of Lebanon, Jounieh

4.7
#1 of 17 in Sightseeing in Mount Lebanon Governorate
Monument Landmark
Looking out over the bay of Jounieh toward Beirut, Our Lady of Lebanon attracts Christian and Muslim pilgrims from around the world. Standing atop a majestic spiral staircase/stone base, the 8 m (26.2 ft) bronze statue of the Virgin Mary encloses a monumental 100 seat-shrine located underneath. Ride the cable car to the top of the hill, located 650 m (2132.5 ft) above sea level, then climb the sloping 19th-century stairway to the base of the statue, where a panoramic view of the city rewards your efforts. Make Our Lady of Lebanon a centerpiece of your Jounieh vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Jounieh trip generator.

  • If you can make your way all the way to the top, the view alone is BREATHTAKING. I will definitely come to visit Our Lady of Lebanon every time I visit home. I also was able to purchase a mini ceramic Our Lady statue from the souvenir store. Amazing experience. Love it and will be back again.
  • For me it's the best place on earth. Very quite place where one can pray in peace. Breathtaking view from the top of our Lady. Night visit is highly recommended
  • Pretty nice area, and great environment. However, didn't feel very spiritual and too commercial. However, still a great area to spend time with family and friends.
  • Must see in Lebanon. Beautiful view, enjoyed the experience up the gondola, prices are fair.
  • A cute little chapel with a nice view from the top
